Traditional Costing System and Job Order Costing System, Cost Accounting

Hello, I''m currently doing a research on a company and planning an Activity Based Costing system since the company is using Traditional Costing system to allocate the overhead to the products ( Total Overhead cost/ unit produced ). And I also obtained information that the calculation of the cost is done through Job Order Costing system.
Is it possible that a company use Job Order Costing system but the allocation of the overhead cost uses Traditional Costing system ?
What is the difference between Traditional Costing system and Job Order Costing then?
